The Lone Sailor Award is given to Sea Service veterans who have excelled with distinction in their respective careers during or after their service. The award recipients will join an impressive list of men and women who have distinguished themselves by drawing upon their military experience to become successful in their subsequent careers and lives, while exemplifying the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

The Lone Sailor Awards Dinner is held each year to Honor, Recognize, and Celebrate our prestigious award recipients and the men and women of the Sea Services.

This impactful event wouldn’t be possible without the support of our corporate donors and partners. For more information about sponsorship, contact Lisa Barker at LBarker@navymemorial.org or (202) 380-0782.
